Teresa Giudice is officially an inmate at Danbury Correctional Institute where she will remain until 2016. While her newest attorney (there’s been a string of ’em) James J. Leonard Jr. has speculated the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star will be out by Christmas of next year, the prison lists it just a leeeetle later than that!
Teresasurrendered to Danbury in the wee hours of the morning on January 5th to avoid the media circus (consisting of Bravo cameras following a sobbing Jacqueline Laurita and desperate Kathy Wakile) already forming outside of her house, and because she didn’t want to expose her daughters to any more negative publicity. Danbury has her prisoner Register Number as 65703-050.
Our source shared with us today that both Teresa and Joe are trying to be strong for their girls, but it’s definitely a struggle. Teresa will get to chat with her daughters today and see them already this weekend. Plus, the rumors of an early birthday party for Gia were true.
It looks like Teresa Giudice might not be spending the whole year of 2015 in federal prison. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s lawyer spoke out this morning about Teresa’s last hours as a free woman and when we can expect her back home with her family.
Teresa will have to serve at least 85% of her 15 months, so her attorney James J. Leonard Jr. shared this morning that she may be out by year’s end. “We project she will be home sometime before Christmas.”
The winners of Reality Tea‘s first annual Readers’ Choice Awards were announced throughout the day Friday. There were a few surprises!
I, for one, was shocked to see Teresa Giudice win favorite Real Housewives of New Jersey star and Jill Zarin win former Real Housewives star you wish would return. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to learn Caroline Stanbury beat out Jim Marchese as the breakout reality TV star of 2014.

Our inside sources (not the same one who confirmed that they’d heard the raid story was true..we’re no longer taking tips from that one) shared with us that most of the stories written about Teresa’s final days before heading off to serve her 15 month sentence were totally fabricated. “So much out there about Teresa’s last days. Radar never has the right info! I can tell you first hand what’s been going on.”
According to NorthJersey.com, cars are being turned away already today. They report that federal employees are blocking access to the road leading up to the Danbury prison in Danbury, Connecticut, making it nearly impossible for anyone to capture Teresa’s arrival. “On Sunday afternoon, a white unmarked car with federal plates guarded Pembroke Road, which leads from Route 37 to the prison, sending unauthorized vehicles back out to the main road. Only a small sliver of the prison complex — mostly an area with high-intensity lights — is visible from Route 37.”
